Are you scared of a little chop down there?

When most guys hear about circumcision, they panic without enough information about what it is or how things go. I have heard one guy ask “What if they make a mistake and they cut the whole property off me?”.  Well, before we even go further, that will not happen! 

First things first: What’s circumcision? In simple terms, it’s when the foreskin, that little “hoodie” covering the tip of a man’s private member, gets removed. Now, before we get any further, let’s clear the air. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to being circumcised or not; it’s a personal choice, often influenced by cultural, religious, or medical reasons. So, whether you’re sporting a turtleneck or a crew neck, you’re still rocking it!

While many guys flinch or get a bit nervous when there is talk of knives near their business, it is good to highlight that removing the ‘hoodie’ is good, and here are some reasons why:

Without the foreskin, it can be easier to clean Mr. Happy. However, those with foreskin can also maintain tip-top hygiene with regular cleaning. With a clean Mr. Happy, you are guaranteed an odorless private area. 

Lower UTIs
Some studies suggest that circumcised men might have a lower risk of urinary tract infections. UTIs in men are rare, but hey, every bit helps! One study that looked at the amount and type of bacteria around Mr. Happy before and after circumcision found a significantly greater amount of bacteria under the foreskin in uncircumcised boys. These bacteria are precisely the kinds of germs that can make their way into the urinary tract and cause an infection. 

Lowered Risk of Some STIs 
While circumcision isn’t a replacement for safe practices, it’s shown to reduce the risk of some STIs like HIV. Several studies have shown that compared with circumcised men, uncircumcised men are at higher risk for acquiring some sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) including chancroid, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis,1–3 and lower risk for acquiring genital herpes and genital warts.

Long Lasting Effect
According to doctors, it is a fact that circumcision makes a male last longer. Though circumcision makes the penis a bit less sensitive to touch, it has no negative impact on sex life. The removal of the foreskin increases the time of ejaculation, thus making the male last longer during sexual intercourse. 

A little note for the ladies: 
A circumcised partner can potentially reduce the risk of transmitting certain STIs. Remember, safe practices are key regardless! For some women, the hygiene benefits associated with a circumcised partner can be reassuring. But gents, remember, it’s all about regular cleaning! I will not say much about the “long-lasting effect.”

Alright, champs, the verdict? Whether you’re all for the snip or prefer things natural, it’s all good. It’s crucial to make informed decisions, understand the pros and cons, and ultimately do what feels right for you. And, as always, make sure to consult with a healthcare professional for any personal medical advice!

It is a personal choice
